The transverse displacement of a string (clamped at its two ends) is given by
where x, y are in meter and t is in second. The length of the string is 1.5 m and its mass is 3.0 x 10-2kg.
Answer the following :
(a) What are the wavelength, frequency and speed of propagation of each wave?
(b) Determine the tension in the string.
A transverse harmonic wave on a string is described by
where x , y are in cm and t in seconds. The positive direction of x is from left to right.
(a) Is this a travelling or a stationary wave? If this is travelling, then what is the speed and direction of its propagation?
(b) What is its amplitude and frequency?
(c) What is the initial phase at the origin?
(d) What is the least distance between two successive crests in the wave?
